ARCE tracks information in Sistema de Información de Compras Estatales (SICE).
All the public bodies governed by public law, including Central Administration (including the Executive, Legislative and Judicial Branches), Departmental Governments, Autonomous Entities and Decentralized Services and bodies with functional autonomy (Court of Auditors, Electoral Court, Administrative Court, among others) are required to use SICE. There is an exclusion with respect to the previous bodies that operate in competitive markets (e.g., purchases of the public cellular telephone company) and that have the right to reserve the information.
It is not mandatory to publish processes where the value of the purchase is below 20% of the threshold corresponding to the agency’s maximum direct purchase amount (some agencies have expanded direct contracting amounts).
